community and we want to name this building after vera hale, who is here on stage. this building, once it's opened will be named the vera hale building. for over 20 years vera has been a tireless advocate around senior issues, around economic security issues. she has worked at curry senior center and i have a list of the boards and commissions she has served on. i will read them to you because it's a longer list i heard many in my life. advisory council to aging and adult services, the mayor's long-term care coordinating council, the san francisco interim support task force and coalition of agencies serve the elders, and i'm sure will there are a hundred other that vera sat on. the list of things that she has worked on goes on and on. to me vera symbolized what san francisco is about. her work and the community she fought so tirelessly for and on top of the dining hall, this corner will forever be st. anthony's dining hall, but the same piece that is mercy housing will be known as vera hale housing. [ applause ] so close. i have a long list. i'm on page 3 there is only seven more. [ laugh

' names ] >> good afternoon miss hale. >> good afternoon and happy new year. i'm vera hale and i'm a member of the advisory council to the department of aging and adult services. and some of us became very concerned when we read that you were considering at some point eliminating age-based discounts. now we think the senior discount is very important and should be larger, but one of the things that we need to keep in mind is that if you do eliminate it, it would be a disaster for seniors. seniors, there are 155,000 seniors in san francisco. that is 19.2% of the population. and it's growing. as you know, baby-boomers are increasing. the older americans act considers people who are 60 to be seniors. and there are 44 nutrition sites in the city and about 2,000 people go everyday -- not everyday, but go to these 44 sites and most of them go on muni and sometimes they go on one, two or three buses. to start segregating people when they are not segregated at meal sites based on their income would create big problems. people have developed social relations, in a time when few social re

. first is barbara hale. >> thank you mr. chairman. barbara hale assistant general manager for power at sfpuc so i wanted to update you on three items, our overall clean timeline, our recent activities at the public utilities commission and activities at the california public utilities commission so with respect to the time line. at this point we're on track. by this date we should have completed presentations at our commission on the presentation by local power on their proposed business case and financial deliverables, and have presented before the commission materials to start to get them familiar with the not to exceed rate proposal which we have been discussing with the board. those activities went forward on tuesday and i will talk about that and we might see slippage with individual elements but even with they am seeing cleanpower sf given to the customers as our published calendar projected the slippage is in part because we're still getting the rate fairness board comfortable with the not to exceed rates with how the mix of resources we rely on for our cleanpower sf progr

. mission control discussed hypotheticals. former flight director wayne hale quoted a colleague saying i think the crew would rather not know. don't you think it would be better or the them to have a happy, successful flight and die unexpectedly during reentry than to stay on orbit, knowing that there was nothing to be done until the air ran out? but hale told us today no one believed the mission would end like this. the shuttle disintegrated 16 days after it launched, killing all seven members and raining debris over texas. president george w. bush ended the shuttle program two years later. hale told me, our staff today i should say, that there was no concern for reentry. the crew was given a summary of the issue with the conclusion of no concern. hale says nasa told crew everything, but everyone agreed there was nothing they could do about the damage. hale says that's the tragic lesson of the "columbia" disaster. quote, we will never again say that there is nothing we can do. i'm joined by nbc news space analyst james oberg. mr. oberg, great to have you with us here tonight on "the ed

whether it's the water out of the substation or solar installations under -- ms. hale has been working hard to get the economics of those projects worked out we are working on a plan it's just that weapon to start with the first phase to see how it actually goes and gets implemented before we do anything larger.. >> any further public comment? >>> david i just want today agree with today's comment about risk i used the word distractions at the last meetings and i'm not a verse to the advocates proposal and or some scales version of it but i just continue to reinforce that these efforts not threaten or under plain our existing utility work in water power and sewer and i can't express that concern enough so i'm not yet convinced that we should commit any hetchy power to this if it proves and we have resource, available, i'm up to that and we should be open to that but we have got to see i think, today just made the comment that we should walk before we can run and we have not been in the retail business to multiple customers like this before. we should see that we can do that first

they hope will serve on this body and we look forward to that. i wanted to ms. hale to follow up on a couple of things and thank you again for all your work. thank your staff. in terms of the rate setting process one of the concerns i have and maybe you can shed light on this, if i may through the chair, in terms of recouping the amounts of reserves that are going to be used here my understanding is there is some flexibility in how much is recoupd and depending how you use that flexibility that could impact rates so i am wondering if you could say something about that and what the thinking is around that issue? >> yes. you will recall when the board considered the program in august the board directed us to -- i can't quote the language, but the basic message was to the extent feasible let's try and recover the dedicated funds. excuse me. what we presented as staff to the rate fairness board was full recovery of all of the funds during the first four and a half years of the program. of course the quicker you recover those funds the more a rate bump it has on the program, so

was to provide updates for power availability as ms. hale said on average. one out of nine years is dry. but if we turn the clock back to 1987 through the early '90s, five out of six years were dry. and, so, it's not really nice and predictable when we tend to have droughts in california or dry water years. same way in the 1970s, we had a couple years out of four that were dry. and, so, on average it's one out of 9, but it can be for extended period of time as we've seen more recently in the late '80s and early '90s. nevertheless, though, we look back at the hetchy portfolio, dusted off some numbers that we had been looking at, and updated those assumptions. we also then, because of that very much unpredictability of wet-dry years. we shaped and formed the savings. if you start with the generation component and once you have unpredictability of wet versus dry and firm it and shape it, you find rate certainty for the rate payers. there's no cost difference between what shell has given us for the no-power price and what we would be able to do with our own hetchy power during the january t

[laughter] >> would you opt in or opt out? because i'm totally confused. >> there are five right answers. it depends if you with wanta light green or dark green product. both green are moving the dial. what we found from previous surveys is there wasn't a big difference between 40% renewable and 100% renewable. >> let me tell you where we're going to have the problems. in the cost of staff to explain this to rate payers who will be calling in confused. i know i'm doing that with my medicare program. i don't know what to do, opt in or opt out. with drug programs, et cetera, we're going to have the same problem here because it's a very difficult decision-making process. now, what's been -- marin is the only comparable program today

issue and so ms. hale who knows this better than i do the seasonality and the if i rememberness of how much is available when, when we can bank through the year and buy more expensive during the none run off period matters a lot. and so mr. moran races a good point if you bring up the most average and cost effective which hetchy is the most cost effective in california and it's an amazing system but i can't tell you it's firm for the next ten or 20 years and you will see that in one of the slides in the consumptions is that ap i has assumed that we have relatively standard prices and relatively affordable hetchy and that it's form year after year and that is a risk had a i can't mitigate away without collateral or or reserves. >> and typically what we do on that is we have a farming contract that says, where hetchy cannot meet the load. somebody else will and we can lock in the price for that. >>> that is typically always more expensive and so in the last ten-seven years, we typically had to buy at six to 7 cents per kilowatt hour and we are always trying to sell it at four so we

can't testimony you that and tell you that and i'll defer to ms. hale. may be you can address this somewhat briefly because we want to move on from this item and can you tell us and especially our last co commissioners proposition about the h bonds? it's a long question for a short answer but how are you proposing to pay for the local build out. >> we plops that h bonds be used for potentially the whole build out consisting of two major categorize of bonds one being taxable bonds and those would be for private benefit on commercial buildings but then, tax exempt bonds for p uc owned generator and is that would include the wind farm and other large generation in the city and so this approach was confirmed by pea body and l.a. s c o year ago and the use for taxable bonds is legal and there is no basis as far as i have ever heard that it's illegal to issue revenue bonds that are taxable and it comes down to whether they are taxable and in this case we have divide them accordingly and we also think there is a role for tax equity, investment in this program and so we are looki
